Default Newbie from Kansas

Hi there! I'm new to this hobby/business and would like some direction, best practices shared with me, etc. I will turn my first pen this Sunday November 12th in a wood pen turning class. I'm pretty excited! I haven't worked with a lathe before but have watched several youtube videos that show how the process works.

As I get more involved with the wood lathe I would like to turn rings, bottle stoppers and jewelry pendants as well.

I'm anticipating really liking the hobby and would like to turn it into another small business.

Are there places to buy the products wholesale? Where's the best places to go for products?

Thank you in advance,

Jeff
